Daniel Chapter One Standing and Fighting FTC Cease and Desist
Order, Refusing to Be Unjustly Silenced by Federal Agency Tyranny.
Public Support is Mounting.
The Federal Trade Commission Administrative Law Judge just Ordered Daniel Chapter One to stop sharing truthful
health information and testimonies, not only about their 7 Herb Formula, BioShark, BioMixx and GDU but “about
ANY dietary supplement, food, drug, or other health related product, service, or program.”
Fight for Right: In Sept. 2008 the health ministry Daniel Chapter One was attacked by the Federal Trade Commission
and charged with making what the FTC calls “implied” claims about their dietary supplements. Without warning or
grace period, Daniel Chapter One was struck with an FTC Order that was extremely burdensome in its demands. More
offensive than the threat of a large monetary fine was the demand that Daniel Chapter One turn over personal customer
information, censure its health information, send a deceptive letter to its community, and agree that the FTC could spy
on them and their associates for the next 20 years.
Jim Feijo, Overseer of Daniel Chapter One, and his wife Tricia Feijo, resolved to fight for Constitutional and
Mr. Feijo strongly believes he has done nothing that he is not entitled to do under Constitutional Law, and chose to fight
rather than allow unrighteousness to rule over righteousness. The attack on Daniel Chapter One is not an isolated case of
its kind, but Daniel Chapter One is the only dietary supplement group standing up and actively fighting this unconstitution-
al government behavior for the good of all. The FTC seeks to oppress and censure natural health information, and if not
stopped will continue to tyrannize dietary supplement companies and will ultimately create a vacuum of health information
for the public.
Bureaucratic Assault on Freedom: On Aug. 5, 2009, after a preliminary hearing in Washington DC, the FTC judge ruled
against the small ministry, charging Daniel Chapter One with “violation of the FTC Act”, which states that pharmaceuti-
cal drugs ONLY can claim to be of benefit for any particular health condition. Daniel Chapter One was found guilty only
of breaking FTC rules as determined by an FTC Judge in an FTC court according to FTC definitions of words and all
for making what FTC called “implied” claims!
The Commission charged Daniel Chapter One with false practices, NOT according to the FTC “falsity theory” (i.e. NOT
because Daniel Chapter One health information is untrue) but based upon the FTC “reasonable basis theory.” By this
measure, only double-blind placebo controlled studies and FDA approved drug status suffice as “reasonable basis” to
make even structure/function health claims, a rule which only benefits the pharmaceutical industry – not the American
consumer seeking helpful health information. No historical knowledge, consumer experience, or traditional practice
satisfies FTC demands. Only the label of drug satisfies FTC demands. Dietary supplements, including herbs and
nutrients, are not drugs.
In 23 years, Daniel Chapter One has never had a single complaint that their products or information harmed any one
in any way, but rather, thousands have claimed that they have helped.
A total of 5 Expert Witnesses, professionals renowned in their field of Science, Naturopathy, and Herbology, each testified
that there is substantial scientific evidence for the health and product information shared by Daniel Chapter One.
Over 80 Fact Witnesses were willing to testify on behalf of the safety and efficacy of Daniel Chapter One products; the
FTC limited the number to 10. Before those witnesses were given an opportunity to testify, they were dismissed as “ir-
relevant”, and blocked from testifying. The testimonies of the doctors who offered Expert testimony were all shot down as
“irrelevant” by the FTC also. The judge refused to watch videos or to listen to any of the hundreds of recorded testimonies
offered by Daniel Chapter One.
The entire FTC case against Daniel Chapter One was based on the testimony of their one “Expert”, an oncologist who
has worked for the last 20 years managing chemo-drug trials for the pharmaceutical industry. He referred to the many af-
fidavit testimonies of Daniel Chapter One, people sent home to die with cancer but healed and alive today, as “worthless”.
He clearly only spoke one language; that of the drug industry.
Resisting Government Coercion: Against Mr. Feijo’s beliefs and the Daniel Chapter One ministry message, the FTC
has once again ordered that a letter written by the FTC be signed by Mr. Feijo and sent out to all Daniel Chapter One
consumers, saying that there is no scientific substantiation to suggest herbal and nutritional products can improve health
and healing, and that only “conventional cancer treatments have been scientifically proven safe and effective” for those
with cancer. The letter promotes the website and phone of the National Cancer Institute. This demand is despotic and
completely unacceptable. Mr. Feijo absolutely refuses to lie for a corrupt pharmaceutical industry, to appease an out-of-
control FTC watchdog. He maintains his allegiance to Yahweh, the Most High God, and to his fellow man.
The FTC has also ordered that Mr. Feijo and Daniel Chapter One stop sharing truthful information with the public about
their products and ministry.
Three times now Daniel Chapter One has refused to settle.
Standing Up For Freedom: Daniel Chapter One is Standing against this assault on First Amendment Rights:
For the sake of Religious Freedom, Freedom of Speech, Freedom of the Press, and Freedom of Assembly! Daniel
Chapter One is Standing to defend the Rights of Americans to receive truthful health information so they have
INFORMED CHOICE. Without Choice, there is no Freedom!
Daniel Chapter One is standing to defend every individual’s unalienable rights under God to pursue Life, Liberty, and
Happiness. Every time the FTC succeeds in blocking truthful information from the public, they disallow every citizen the
right to freely, personally pursue those things.
Health Freedom Fight: Individuals and groups around the country are joining and supporting the Daniel Chapter One
Health Freedom Fight! Daniel Chapter One has become part of a growing national debate -- and now the poster child
-- for the right of the individual to information and choice when it comes to health care. The Health Freedom movement
is demanding that the FTC be brought back into alignment with the Constitution of the United States of America. Health
Freedom fighters say it’s time to reign in a government agency that has become a public enemy.
Right now, in Congress, there are two critical Bills introduced by Dr. Ron Paul, H.R. 3395 The Health Freedom Act,
and H.R. 3394, The Freedom of Health Speech Act, which prevents the Federal Trade Commission from taking action
against anyone communicating a health benefit for a product they offer, unless the FTC first establishes based on clear
and convincing evidence that the statement made is false and that its communication causes harm to the public. For more
